ahs-hotel-finale-ratings-jan-13-16

The finale of “American Horror Story: Hotel” was by far the biggest gainer in Live +3 ratings for the week of Jan. 11-17. The episode more than doubled its 18-49 rating (1.1 to 2.3) with three days of delayed viewing.

“AHS” also moved up several spots in the rankings for the week. It’s second on the chart below*. The same-day Top 25 chart for cable is here.

*(The L+3 list TV by the Numbers received omits ESPN studio shows, including “SportsCenter.” VH1’s “Love and Hip Hop” was also omitted but would rank in the Top 25 below, as its same-day rating was 1.6.)  

Below are the Live +3 rankings in adults 18-49 and viewers for Jan. 11-17, followed by lists of the biggest gains in each measure. Unlike Live +7, these rankings include specials as well. Percentage-gain leaders are not reported here.
